planning a whipped cream covered sheet cake for 1st brthday----what would work best for decorations----buttercream? fondant? gumpaste?
haven't decided on type---flowers. figures, or just accents and writing.
limited due to surgery on right arm. please help.
I agree, I'd go with buttercream. Fondant and gumpaste could melt.
JUST SAW AN EPISODE ON 'CAKE BOSS' WHERE THEY DID 'MOVING' ROBOT CAKE. SINCE IT WAS SO LARGE AND HAD TO BE MOVEABLE THROUGH THE USE OF TWO MECHANIZED MOTORS, THEY WANTED A LIGHT CAKE AND USED SPONGE FOR THE CAKE, WHIPPED CREAM FOR THE FILLING AND FROSTING. THEN THEY COVERED THE WHOLE THING IN FONDANT TO MAKE AND RESEMBLE THE ROBOT. LOOKED FANTASTIC BUT BUDDY IA AN EXCEPTIONAL CAKE DECORATOR.
WISHED THEY WOULD GIVE MORE DETAILS OR HOW TO.
BUT THANKS, I WILL USE BUTTERCREAM AND FEEL SAFER WITH THE END RESULT.
